The first thing you should do is the Due Soon & Important, Second Due Later & Important, Third Due Soon & Not Important, Fourth Due Later & Not Important. Many people would do the Due Soon & Not Important, but you shouldn’t put something “not important” over something “important” no matter when it is due.
These are ideas to try out when you feel like you are on overload with all of the work that is due, but don’t spend too much time doing these things. Just take an hour or half an hour out of your day. You could also try turning off your cell phone for an hour so that people are not distracting you from your work.
This was an example of my calendar last year. I would color code each class and each organization I am in and then organize them into my day because when I see that I only have 24 hours in my day then I cannot add too much to it because it literally will not fit into the day.
